When Sin City first came out on the big screen, I was intrigued by the art style, so I did a little research and learned what I could about crime noir comics. What I learned was that it was a breeding ground for sex, violence, drugs, and any other nasty part of society you wanted to throw in there. This bothered me, because I hated that such an interesting genre would have to be so graphically base in it's depictions. So, not to be deterred, I started trying to think of a way to take something Noir-ish and make it Christian.So, my question to all of you is, what elements of a crime noir story would have to be present for it to still be a noir story? Obviously I couldn't have any sex scenes or anything along those lines. Also, obviously, I could simply have the whole thing drawn in black and white. But what would have to be included to make it relevant for the people interested in the genre? What would have to be in it for someone who enjoys reading Sin City to also enjoy reading about a faith-based character? Please share your thoughts.
